i have a 2014 RAV4 and I thought the running bars for it would be a little too thick for the cross bar clamp. It isn't. it opened wide, really wide. Managed to screw it in, I always check to make sure it's tight at every stop. it is. Drove 12 hours, no problem. Really good buy for the price.
Totally worth it. I like to go a bit overboard so, next long drive, I'm putting in a strap.
I liked the product description and the price for the item I was interested in.. I ordered the product and when it arrived I installed them right away. I am impressed with the quality of the item and the ease of installation. They blend in the my roof rack. It was a great purchase, great price and outstanding delivery. I look forward to many years of use.
Great product. Well made, designed and arrived on my doorstep 1 day early! Fits my old Yakima Cartop carrier just great!
I recently decided to get into being a more out active and outdoors person (not that I wasn't before) and decided I wanted to get a kayak. Spent a lot of time reviewing many racks like this one and either they seemed too cheaply made or way out of my budget with buying a new kayak. I decided to go with this one as someone else on Amazon had purchased it for their 2004 Jeep Liberty. Knowing it would fit my racks as I also drive a Jeep Liberty ('05) I knew it would be a great purchase.
Arrived Earlier than quoted!! Almost by a week!!
When I had received it I knew it was great quality as this thing is heavy but solid. I had to try it out and put it on right away. Looks great, works great for transporting the kayak's to and from the river.
Best purchase for this price range hands down. Thank you very much for the great racks! Will definitely be going to your site when it's time to upgrade!
This unit is heavier than I expected and very easy to install. I have used it haul lumber and my canoe on top of a Pontiac Vibe. After using, it takes just a few minutes to take it off the vehicle. I am going to dab a bit of heavy oil on the bolts. It should last a long time.
Fit well,look solid and the price is very reasonable. I will put them to a number of tests and chime in later.
I have two GM vehicles with side rails but no cross bars. Found these bars by searching specific vehicle make and year. Thought I would give them a try. Arrived yesterday. Good sturdy packaging. Simple instructions that I looked after I was done installing the crossbars on a 2012 Acadia. Excellent fit and very sturdy. I'll come back to Discount Ramps when the need arrives.
Bought this for my 2015 Nissan Rogue SV - fits perfectly. Easy on and off, solid, sturdy. I only occasionally use the roof for transport and wanted something that would be quick and easy to use but able to do the job. The product was shipped promptly, arrived on time, in good shape. Instructions are clear and simple, though the product doesn't really need much in the way of instruction.
I have a 2004 dodge durango - the roof rack fit with some minor adjustment. At first it was not sitting flush on my side railings since the clamp was hitting the roof, since it was maybe 1/16 -1/8 of an inch additional clearance that was needed I just slid of the very bottom of the protective rubber coating of the clamp - no nothing touched my roof an the bars sit flush. Seem to be very secure and were still tight after a 5 hour trip in the rain carrying max load.
Bought this for our 2010 Honda Odyssey to hold a Thule SUP Taxi system. Shipment was quick, installation was easy, quality of the rails is high, and the instructions were well written. The only area for improvement would be in design, to address noise abatement through streamlining the knobs on the tightening screws. We are very happy with our purchase and recommend these to other users.
I like the low profile design. I like the price as compared to other units. The simple design and ease of installation makes this a referable unit. One thing I wish was a way to secure this unit like a lock to keep theft from becoming a concern. I needed a way to transport my 28ft. ladder without having to use my big van.
I bought these rack to fit atop my 2009 Ford Escape so I could haul larger items safely and securely. I was impressed how easily the go on and come off. But once on, they are sturdy! This was important because I will only use them use them once in a while and don't want them on my vehicle all of the time.
I just got these for my 2005 Ford Focus station wagon. The were so easy to install, fits perfect and really seems like a quality item. Not cheaply made.
Brought roof cross bar for my jeep Liberty (2007) love them looks good and so easy too install Love them just great.
Seems to be solid and compatible to the Thule system. I plan to use this bar as the winter setup while the OEM bar will be for summer bikes and kayak.
These just came in the mail, they fit great on my outback! I installed them in literally 4 minutes and they feel solid and sturdy, I recommend this rack!
Obviously, these are not like a factory installed product. HOWEVER, for the price of these compared to the price of a factory job or some Thule racks, these are phenomenal. We use ours to carry an aluminum canoe. They install easily and stay put. Unlike some products from other manufacturers. They also come off your vehicle easily and quickly. We only put ours on when we need to haul the canoe. That helps save a little gas. These are well worth the investment. The only reason I gave them a 4 star and not a 5 is that they aren't the prettiest things. As far as functionality, they are perfect. Worth a try.
